Our Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun-like star. The newly discovered Kepler-452b is the smallest planet to date discovered orbiting in the habitable zone -- the area around a star where liquid water could pool on the surface of an orbiting planet -- of a G2-type star, like our sun.

- It really looks like it is too late and options zero.
It would still be fun to try an experiment with 2C where the world is aligned to strengthen Earth.Jul 25, 2015
- i don't know where's the "amazing thing"
there are some planeta like earth, or even better...Jul 26, 2015
- Time is up against deadline here. Earth needs to be focus of world enterprise.
(There could easily be double barrel by failure to reboot world enterprise to align w Earth OK) http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2014/06/arctic-atmospheric-methane-global-warming-veil.htmlJul 26, 2015
- Good news for all of us. Thanks ☺Jul 26, 2015
- So at this point are we just archiving earthlike planets that we'll prob never visit...? NASA budget for manned spaced exploration was non existent last time I checked.. Why are we even archiving something 1000+ light years away from us when we havnt even figured out a way to travel even a fraction of the space needed?Jul 26, 2015
- Projects like Kepler will be even better once we develop better methods for finding the chemical composition of the planets and other traits. I wonder what the different environments of other planets will do to the way life evolves.Aug 11, 2015
